The Valles Caldera Trust took a few more jabs from its critics at a standing-room only public meeting Thursday night at the Hilltop House, while announcing plans for several improvements.
Trustees muted their recent emphasis on commercial development projects on the public property, and Gary Bratcher, the Valles Caldera’s executive director, said he was serious about trying to help Dorothy Hoard of Los Alamos realize her vision of a 78-mile rim trail around the entire Valles Caldera Preserve.
“The board has discussed the rim project, said board chairman Stephen Henry, “and we do think that’s a good idea.”
Preserve Manager Dennis Trujillo introduced a brief presentation on the preserve’s master plan for pubic access and use, which has been bubbling to the surface since 2007, and will be a policy vehicle for many long-term plans and decisions, including moneymaking projects.
Trujillo described work to be done on a six-mile stretch of back road along with deferred maintenance work on some of the preserve’s historic buildings.
The preserve’s website, which the Marketing and Communications Manager, Terry McDermott noted, did not have a search engine or a site map, will also come in for an upgrade.
